      I apologize for starting a new discussion without having responded to your replies about my query on Batman.  I promise to get to them by the weekend.
      I was recently watching the original Prince Valiant film (1954).  I was surprised to learn that in this film, Valiant hails from Scandia, since that is where Marvel Comics's Black Knight is said to come from.  Did Stan Lee "borrow" from the film or is the Scandia origin for Sir Percy a later addition to the legend.  If no one knows, I suppose we could always ask Stan himself.
